Basically everything you need from a cheap-ish hostel. It was clean, quiet and in a convenient location. Staff were friendly and accommodating (allowing us to leave our luggage there even after we had checked out). Bathroom facilities were limited but clean. Some nice features such as table tennis table, sofas and TV, vending machines and computers and free WiFi. We... More

The hostel was nice enough, but the staff were a bit abrupt when we first arrived. There were 4 of us travelling & we booked a dorm together but when we got there we were placed into two separate dorms, but next door to each other! The games room was a good place to chill & play pool and the... More

We booked a short 2 night 3 day break in Dublin. The hostel was well staffed, with nice and friendly members of the team (even after our key card fiasco) nice and spacious rooms with high ceilings. Clean as best as can be. Great kitchen facilities and good social and relaxing communal area. Lockers in room are a good plus... More

Was not very clean. Staff was not memorable. But I was in Dublin and that was all that mattered. Would stay again largely based on price. I was focused more on Dublin than our room and the many random people we stayed with. Still better than the hostel I stayed in for paris!

I stayed there for 2 weeks and I shared the biggest dorm (16 people). The staff is really easygoing and kind. They always tries to help and answer to all your questiones. You have free wifi in all rooms and at the reception you can use 3 pc for free. The kitchen is situated in the basement the working hours... More

Me and my friends stayed here for five nights, and got our own room. The beds were nice enough, but the sheets were really dirty. Everything else was really simple, and what you expect from a cheap hostel. It has a nice location, really close to O'Connell street and a ten min. walk to Temple bar. Nice and quiet in... More

I stayed in this hostel with a friend while our weekend in Dublin during 3 nights. In our arrival we were greeted promptly, the staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was in the 3rd floor, a lot of stairs with a luggage is not very easy and they don't have lifts. The room was clean and big enough... More

We booked a private room for two people for two nights and when we arrived we saw that our “room” was a suite with bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Since we had many things to see in Dublin we didn’t spend much time there, but we would have liked to do!

Quiet location, near to Dublin centre. Staff is helpful and nice. For low price you get just bed, and in my case (6 beds room en suite) nothing else. For emergency sleep is OK but for longer stay not.

the hostel is very nice, the location is perfect for exploring the centre of Dublin. Really close to Temple Bar so good for going out. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was really big and had plenty of sockets.
